Eric, that is a real old school way of doing it. Like centuries old. It's nice to see you take the time to do that.
Chuck, sometimes it is waaaay faster to use a photo to trace the basic shapes. Cars are like people, if one thing is off it won't look like what or who you are drawing. Maybe a relative but not the actual person ( or car ).

That has always worked better for me than the old grid method they taught us in art class in grade school. Seems odd to have to use a calculator to help draw, but it works. Here's one I did that way from two small (~3"x4") photos I printed off the web.

... I didn't look at it as cheating as much as a tool to help me get it done acurately and quickly. ...
Plus, if it's your photo you're tracing, then it's kinda like transferring your work from one media to another. I still prefer to do (and have more respect for) drawings that are done freehand.
